Walgreens said Thursday, Sept. 8, 2016, it will probably have to unload more stores than originally expected in order to ease regulatory concern about its pending acquisition of Rite Aid, a deal valued at more than $9 billion that will make the nation’s largest drugstore chain even bigger.

Closing out the week, Jon Hansen stepped in for Steve Bertrand and checked in with Ben Meyerson about how Walgreens had a great start to the week since they joined the Dow Jones, but then Amazon burst their bubble. Tom Gimbel revealed that “ghosting” happens in the business world, Aaron Weigel shared the story behind his small business success of Weigel Tool Works on the monthly Wintrust Community Leader conversation, and Alan Reed explained why Chicago is the place to be for in the food and beverage industry.
